The most ancient traces of grapevine cultivation in Valpolicella date back to the 5th century B.C. Our vineyards are positioned in Negrar in the “classico zone”, a cluster of small valleys, where vines, olives, and cherries thrive. An excellent climate influenced by the mountains and nearby lake Garda.
'At Guerrieri Rizzardi, we produce estate grown fine wines from our historical estates. The relationship between our land, heritage and tradition has, for many years, moulded our philosophy, yet we never loose sight of innovation in our quest to produce a better bottle of wine.
Guerrieri Rizzardi make full use of the region’s best native grapes (Corvina, Corvinone, Garganega) but we also plant other Italian and International grape varieties including Barbera, Sangiovese, Merlot and Chardonnay due to their suitability to our soils. Guerrieri Rizzardi believes in producing wines as an expression of the soil and of the grape variety, thus enhancing the unique personality and character of each wine. Ultimately, our goal is produce wines of quality that have fruit purity, structure and are true reflections of their vineyards.
A small yield is the cornerstone of our vineyard philosophy and over the years we have reduced to a quantity level much lower than required by DOC law.
In the cellar we combine traditional practices with modern wine-making techniques but at a the minimum level of intervention. The work done in the vineyard vastly reduces what has to be done in the cellar.
At Guerrieri Rizzardi we are constantly striving to produce a better bottle of wine from our estates and we constantly research and instigate new methods and technological advancements to achieve that goal.
In our vineyards we respect the balance of nature. We use natural compost to fertilize the vines and we keep the immediate environment in the tradition of natural plant diversity – in today’s language, biodiversity.'
